Hi Raimundo,
Orchids are such fascinating plants...
I like a lot the dark red of this one, and the good contrast and composition made with it.
Despite the little noise seen at the back, the overall image is very good.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

  • Great

Hi Raimndo,

Amazing orchid! Excellent composition and colors.

Is it an epiphyte?
